History & Heritage


Stranraer, to many people is "the place where you get the ferry to Ireland". Other visitors use the town as a convenient point to explore Wigtownshire but many have also found that Stranraer itself has its own fascination.

The older parts of the Royal Burgh suggest the haphazard growth of a little lochside settlement but a closer look will discover buildings and features which played a part in the history of Stranraer.

The Town Trail begins with The Strand by Castle of St. John (click on the map or links below - start at Castle St. John or choose to roam elsewhere in the town):
